Friendship

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 4d

If I distilled my research properly, then teens want contemporary YA with friendship stories and diverse protagonists, but de-emphazing "issue books." #MSWL

I'm over suspense that features a man controlling the strings with the central protag overpowered and manipulated by him. Give me your thrillers with dynamic leading women. Show me what suspense looks like btwn friends, btwn sisters. Explore these relationships deeply #MSWL

#MSWL Can someone tackle the devastation of the Spice Girls break-up? And like the reflection of a friendship group?

I really do love #TheBoldType. If you can comp your book to it (especially the female friendships, diverse experiences, and chasing your dreams), please send it my way. #MSWL

I mention friendship a lot but it’s such a huge part of Middle and high school. Lately I’ve read a lot of (published) mg & ya with really bad/toxic friendships. I’d love to see strong, positive, healthy friendships in my inbox 💛❤️ #mswl

I'd love to rep more graphic novels for the younger set -- 6-8 yo readership, themes like friendship, family, pets/animals, nonfiction would be cool too. Human protagonists or more fanciful and fantastical works too! Ready to be delighted! #mswl #gn

That's it, more women's fiction with girls trips. Or, a domestic suspense featuring women's friendships (maybe a girls trip). #MSWL I also love the idea of a book featuring new and old wives/spouses.

I was helping @jamerrson craft his #MSWL & realized I should post a few of my own. I'd love to see wine-related women's fiction -- set a vineyard, a girls trip, like Sideways, but featuring friendships. A birthday trip? Girls trip?

"A diverse, contemporary YA novel about strong guy friendships. Think Poe and Finn. <3" @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · Apr 29

I really want a YA contemporary with a powerful female friendship. Like one of those fast, somewhat combustible friendships that takes 100% of you in the high school years and maybe cannot last forever but leaves that soul-deep mark... #mswl

I'd love to see more contemporary YA focused around friendship struggles rather than romance. Romance is great, but I'd rather have it sidelined in favor of friends. As always, stories by and about the lives of underrepresented voices are best! #mswl

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 24

I also want a beautifully written, yet character driven friendship book. I'm fascinated by the dynamics of friendships. Great examples of the writing I want here are Kit Frick, Courtney Summers, Sabaa Tahir. These authors swept me away. #MSWL #YA

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 23

In light of my query 0, I am going to do a #MSWL tomorrow. For now, here is a snapshot:
-Fluffy YA rom-com.
-Well-written psychological friendship book (YA)
- Literary-esque but cinematic fantasy YA and MG
- Historical Fiction like @RutaSepetys
- Quirky, Fun, Voicey MG

I need a friendship break-up book.

But also a super cute rom-com

When I say "I love love," I don't only mean romantic. I want stories about the love between friends and families, too. About the realities & limits of love. Love gone right & love gone wrong. Love that feels eternal & love that feels finite. Love beginning & love ending. #mswl
